The Best of Rimmel

Hi Everyone!

Welcome back to another beauty post! As many people know, I am a Rimmel lover and it is by far my favourite drugstore makeup brand and is the brand that I own the most makeup from at the moment.
Whether it is a mascara I need, a full coverage foundation or a pretty blush, I always go straight to the nearest Rimmel stand!
It is a relatively inexpensive brand and there are often 3 for 2 offers on Rimmel in Boots and Superdrug which is when I like to stock up.
As I am huge fan, I have put together my top Rimmel picks for you and recommending my favourite products from this brand.

Number 1:
Blush in 'Pink Rose'
My all time favourite blush that I go back to time after time, is the 'Pink Rose'. The reason I love this is because it is more of a corally pink blush rather than a pink pink blush. I am not a fan of too much blush on the cheeks. Rather, a light dust of blush on the apples of your cheeks is enough for a naturaly blushing look. Remember: always start in the centre of your eyes and never go past your nose when applying blush!


Number 2:
25 Hour Lasting finish Foundation
This is a full coverage liquid foundation that I reach for for nights out. From time to time I use i during the day, but it is quite heavy so I tend to save it for nights out, formal gatherings or if I am going to an event. Although it is a '25 hour' foundation, it does not last that long but it does last a full night. I pick this up in shade 200 which is slightly darker than my natural skin tone and it lasts 2- 3 months as I use it sparingly.
Love it!

Number 3:
Wake Me Up Foundation
Here is my favourite day time foundation. It is a lightweight liquid foundation with a very very small hint of shimmer as an undertone which gives the 'wake me up' effect. It brightens your face instantly therefore is excellent on those mornings where you feel tired and want to look the opposite!

Number 4:
'Brow This Way' Brown Styling Gel
I blogged about this in one of my monthly favourites during the Summer and it is still a favourite of mine. I use the 'medium' shade in this product as my eyebrows are dark naturally. there is a lighter shade and a darker one so you are bound to find one that suits you. I give a quick brush through my brows each morning and it just helps to set them and keep them in place for the day. It gives a slight colour also which I like and helps to shape the brows even more.

Number 5:
Extra Lash Mascara
This is a new favourite of mine. I received this product at the Elite Munster Blogger Network meetup afew months ago and only tried in the last 3-4 weeks. It is excellent! If you follow me on Snapchat (styleah), you will have seen me trying it on for the first time. After just one coat, my lashes were lengthened and separated beautifully. I apply two coats for the full effect and it is does not shed or gather underneath my eyes throughout the day. Love it.

Number 6:
Rimmel Fix & Perfect Pro Primer.
It's basic but it's brilliant. no need to spend a fortune on a high end primer when you have this gem for just €8. It glides on smoothly leaving your skin with a velvety finish, ready for you to start painting on :) Primer helps in the application of makeup and gives you a smoother base. It also helps makeup to stay on longer and to avoid it sliding or sweating off your face.

And there you have it. My favourite Rimmel products at the moment, each coming in at under €10, fab!

What other Rimmel products do you guys love? I would love to hear.

Love, Leah xx
